Hello again — every few months I tend to pop back in, and it’s about that time, again.
I signed in and re-read my last blog, about turning 30. Here I am, three months later, and still adjusting to 30. Honestly, age really is just a number — except last night at dinner when our very, spunky, waitress, was a reminder that I’m no longer 22..but I digress.
When asked how old I am, I have to pause and think about it. I’m not yet trained to say 30. But so far, I have no complaints.
This year is turning into an exciting year of firsts. A year of growth. A year of challenge. While I’m still working on the weight thing — more on that later — I’ve definitely been saying yes to things. Number 1 item, definitely being travel.
I’ve always been enamored with travel. But I’ve never had the time, or the money, (fill in the blank excuse) etc, to really do the travel I’ve wanted. This year that changes.
I have little trips sprinkled throughout the year (Napa for a girls’ weekend, Vegas for a BFF’s 30th Birthday, Palm Springs getaway with the Husband, a random weekend in Houston, possibly followed by a Caribbean cruise, thanks to a silent auction), and then we finally have a big trip on the docket.
In November we will be taking a round the world trip to Europe and Thailand. I. Can’t. Wait. I’m beyond stoked, and every couple days I get that giddy “is this really happening?!” realization. And then I profusely google what to wear, what do I need to pack, how should I pack, where should we go, etc in each destination.
Let’s just say, there’s nothing I love more than planning trips, or schedules. So I am in heaven. And I get an amazing travel experience in the end.
So, in addition to travel, work and training for this half marathon are at the forefront of my life these days. I’m still active with the Tone It Up plan, and I have a 5k this weekend — which I’m expecting to do terribly, but hey, I’m counting it as a “training” run.
I also hope to get back on the home improvement train over the next year — which my husband keeps kindly reminding me that the more we travel, the longer until we have new bathrooms and a kitchen. I personally expect that money will just magically appear, and it will all be fine and dandy. Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket…or get a second job….Nah.
So for now, I’m certainly enjoying this little thing called life, and I really can’t complain about how 30 is treating me so far. Cheers to a wonderful life.
